A photo,.. I didn’t take. Found it over at LPV magazine. I just love how he puts these images together.
The Puyallup River Valley (A Photo Essay)

A film Zabriskie Point.

Saw this film when I was a little kid and it’s always stuck with me. The part near the end when the house blows up and the long sequence of debris flying through the air effected me greatly. I went looking for that clip on youtube and discovered the entire film is online.

A book

419 by Will Ferguson.

We just read this for #wpgbookclub. Surprisingly accessible it reveals the mentality behind those annoying spam emails you get from Nigeria. Our bookclub tended to cite the middle of the book, portraying the long journeys a few characters were on, dragged a bit. But the last 1/4 of the book was  very gripping. Worthy of the accolades.

An art installation.

Tom Sachs Space Program Mars 

Photogallery here  and the website for the installation is here.

Artist Tom Sachs takes his SPACE PROGRAM to the next level with a four week mission to Mars that recasts the 55,000 square foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall as an immersive space odyssey with an installation of dynamic and meticulously crafted sculptures. Using his signature bricolage technique and simple materials that comprise the daily surrounds of his New York studio, Sachs engineers the component parts of the mission—exploratory vehicles, mission control, launch platforms, suiting stations, special effects, recreational amenities, and Mars landscape—exposing as much the process of their making as the complexities of the culture they reference.
